Huddersfield Town are not one of the teams interested in signing Leeds United’s Chris Wood according to a report from the Daily Mirror journalist David Anderson.
While Leeds had a great season as they challenged for a place in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, though they would end up missing out and ended up finishing in 7th place, it was Wood who would end up as the breakout star of the team. He would end up as the top scorer of the league when he scored 27 goals, comfortably beating the likes of Glenn Murray, Tammy Abraham and Dwight Gayle.
But as you’d expect with a player who has been in such red-hot form, teams have started to become interested in Wood and are looking to sign him this transfer window. One report suggested in what would certainly be a blow to the morale of Leeds, their West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town were interested in signing him. They were promoted to the Premier League after winning the Championship play-off final against Reading and Wood would have certainly helped them score more goals in the top tier.
But as it turns out, that rumour may not have been completely truthful as a journalist as now come out to stay it is not true. David Anderson has said the Terriers have not gone in for Wood, though doesn’t say anything on whether or not the club were interested in the past. However Leeds can’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet as the same journalists says that Stoke City and West Ham United are interested and will be going in for him.
